Staff from Bluebird Care in Dorset are taking to the skies in a bid to raise £1,500 for Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance this Saturday 18th April.

The six brave thrill-seekers will test their nerves and jump from over 10,000 feet by doing a tandem freefall skydive at Salisbury Airfield. If that wasn’t enough, the group will also hold a raffle and cake sale to further aid their fundraising efforts.

Caroline Flay, Operations Manager for Bluebird Care Dorset said: “We wanted this to be a real team-building event as well as a fundraiser. We have one Care Worker from each of our four offices taking part along with two members of our management team. The activity itself was suggested by one of our Weymouth Care Workers and hope that those taking on the challenge will be able to identify with the high-altitude work performed by the air ambulance crew every day!”

We were thrilled to announce in December last year that Bluebird Care in Dorset had chosen us as their charity of the year.  In addition to their skydive event this Saturday, they have additional events planned for later in the year and have set themselves a challenging goal of raising £5,000! Go team Bluebird!
